A word of warning for those who are thinking of buying from MPD. I bought my TP2 from them 10 weeks or so ago. It has recently developed a touch screen fault. MPDs response is that after 7 days they have no responsibility for the device, that I need to return it to HTC for warranty repair, which will take 3 weeks or so, during which time I have no phone.

I am now faced with doing without the phone or taking action under the Sale of Goods act.

Caveat Emptor!

Does anyone know if the htc touch pro 2 will work on old sero plans? I have a sprint moto q that I want to upgrade to htc pro 2 but I also don't want to give up my sero plan (cost: approx $ 30/month).

Thanks
Kash

That is total bo**ocks. They are the retailer and they must fix it.

A word with their local trading standards officer would be useful. And if MPD won't budge then if you bought the phone or any part of the deal on a credit card then a word with them too.

Here in Washington DC I can't find a single store with it in stock. Only 1 store even has a single example for display!

So I called AT&T, asked to speak to Customer Retention, FYI my monthly total is about $120 and my contract was up. Got a nice guy called Alex and told him I wnated to get the phone, and since my contract was up I was looking around for the best deal.

At first he was able to get it down to a net after rebates of $250. I winged a bit and suggested he try again as I thought I could do better elsewhere. He went off to talk to someone (a Supervisor I guess) and came back with the following:

$350 - $50rebate -another $50 rebate -10% + $249.99 plus a $50 mail in rebate to HTC for a net total of $174.99!

I could pry the actual rebate codes out of him, but feel free to press for the same deal!

At wireless.amazon.com the tilt 2 (same as touch 2 with slightly different keyboard) for AT&T is on sale.
$49.99 for upgrade and $0.01 for new service with free activation charge (two-yr contract :lol: ).
I ordered and expect to see it in a couple of days.
